Calgary Conference Aims to Advance Research and Discuss Driving Factors of Overdiagnosis (Video) – CTV News

Watch video - Steven Woloshin, a professor of The Dartmouth Institute and of medicine, is quoted in an article about a conference at the University of Calgary discussing the issue of (and possible solutions to) doctors over-prescribing and over-diagnosing their patients. “Sometimes something as innocent as a simple blood test or an X-ray can uncover problems that you don’t know what to do and can cause harm,” Woloshin said.
